SunRISe-3: This study is comparing the effectiveness of standard treatment with immunotherapy to a new treatment using chemotherapy in people with BCG-niave high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancerA Phase 3, Open-Label, Multi-Center, Randomized Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of TAR-200 in Combination With Cetrelimab or TAR-200 Alone Versus Intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) in Participants With BCG-naïve High-Risk Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

Clinical summary

Summary

This study is recruiting people with high grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer who have not had prior treatment with Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG). Eligible participants will be randomly allocated to one of three treatment arms. In Arm A (Experimental), participants will receive TAR-200 + targeted therapy (centrelimab). TAR-200 involves chemotherapy (gemcitabine + osmotic minitablets) being administered directly into the bladder using a catheter (intravesically) once every 3 weeks. In Arm B (Active Comparator), participants will receive immunotherapy, called Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) Vesiculture. BCG will be administered intravesically once every 6 weeks (induction therapy) followed by once every week for 3 weeks starting at Weeks 12, 24, 48, 72, and 96 (maintenance therapy). In Arm C (Experimental), participants will receive TAR-200 alone. TAR-200 will be administered intravesically once every 3 weeks.

Scientific Title

A Phase 3, Open-Label, Multi-Center, Randomized Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of TAR-200 in Combination With Cetrelimab or TAR-200 Alone Versus Intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) in Participants With BCG-naïve High-Risk Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

Eligibility

Inclusion

  • Histologically confirmed initial diagnosis by local pathology (within 90 days of the most recent signed informed consent) of high grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (HR-NMIBC) (high-grade Ta, any T1 or carcinoma in-situ [CIS]), in participants who are Bacillus Calmette Guérin (BCG)-naïve
  • BCG-naïve (participants who have not received prior intravesical BCG or who previously received but stopped BCG more than 3 years before date of randomization are eligible)
  • All visible papillary disease must be fully resected (absent) prior to date of randomization and documented at baseline cystoscopy. Local urine cytology at screening must be negative or atypical (for high-grade urothelial carcinoma [HGUC]) for patients with papillary only disease (without CIS)
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status Grade 0, 1, or 2
  • All adverse events associated with any prior surgery and/or intravesical therapy must have resolved to common terminology criteria for adverse events (CTCAE) version 5.0 Grade less than (<) 2 prior to date of randomization
  • Participants must be willing to undergo all study procedures

Exclusion

  • Presence or history of histologically confirmed, muscle invasive, locally advanced, nonresectable, or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (that is, greater than and equal to [>=] T2)
  • Must not have had urothelial carcinoma or histological variant at any site outside of the urinary bladder (that is, urethra, ureter, or renal pelvis). Ta/any T1/CIS of the upper urinary tract (including renal pelvis and ureter) is allowable if treated with complete nephroureterectomy more than 24 months prior to randomization
  • Presence of any bladder or urethral anatomic feature (example, urethral stricture) that, in the opinion of the investigator, may prevent the safe insertion, indwelling use, removal of TAR-200 or administration of intravesical BCG. Participants with tumors involving the prostatic urethra in men will be excluded
  • A history of clinically significant polyuria with recorded 24-hour urine volumes greater than 4000 milliliters (mL)
  • Indwelling catheters are not permitted; however, intermittent catheterization is acceptable

Exclusion

  • You have been diagnosed with a prior or secondary type of cancer.
  • You have had certain treatments, surgical procedures or drugs.
